Concord, CA – February 25, 2020 LightRiver, the premier optical network integration solution provider for next generation, multi-vendor, Factory Built Networks® and netFLEX® Transport Domain Orchestration and Control Software solutions, announces today that it has been recognized within the 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews. LightRiver is a High-Score Recipient for its intelligent Factory Built Network (iFBN)TM solution in the Field Test Equipment category.

LightRiver’s iFBN is the integration of two LightRiver products: Factory Built Network and netFLEX software. The iFBN process utilizes netFLEX Analytics to capture all critical network data at the time of network Factory Build in an ideal environment and captured again via netFLEX at the completion of field installation. This segment-by-segment capture provides the baseline for programmable actioning and ongoing testing for the life of the network and associated services thereafter.

“LightRiver continues its award-winning path, and is delighted to be a High-Score Recipient in the 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews for iFBN, our turn-key approach to network implementation and intelligent field testing,” comments Greg Byrne, Vice President of Global Professional Services of LightRiver. “iFBN is a solution we’re proud to deliver to our customers, as it offers a true baseline and personalization required for the right visibility, reporting and actionability.”

The Lightwave Innovation Reviews recognizes excellence in products, services and technology applicable to optical networks. Technology developers are invited to submit new or recently enhanced products or services for review by an independent panel of judges. This year’s judging panel included executives from network operators, technology vendors, and industry research and analysis firms. The awards reception will be held March 9, 2020 in San Diego at OFC 2020.
